Just heard that Jay Barker and his BBQ team "Smokin' Sultans" will be in the Memphis in May BBQ contest next week. I've been to MIM several times over the years and their BBQ contest is the biggest in the U.S. A team has got to be pretty damn good to get in the competition!!
So, all you BS'ers that comment on PitMasters must be full of crap. You've got to be on your game to get to cook at Memphis in May. Whether Jay and the Sultans win or lose is not the issue.(would be cool as hell if they won tho). His BBQ is worthy enough to be consider alongside the best in the nation.
Kiss my ass haters!! Go Jay and the Smokin' Sultans! Smoke that Pig y'all!!

I've been attending the Memphis In May World Championship BBQ Cooking Contest for almost two decades. My team, Too Sauced To Pork, has been competing at MIM for the last 8 years. While you used to have to win regional contests to get into MIM, that is no longer the case. While about 1/3 of the teams are there because they won their way in, the rest get in by a simple application process.

MIM is also not the biggest contest in the Nation. The largest BBQ Contest in the USA is the American Royal in Kansas City. MIM has the distinction of being the Largest PORK BBQ contest in the world.

Not trying to detract from the above team's accomplishments, just providing facts.

He has been doing that for years, I had his B.B.Q. it tasted like ground up ,mushy meat, Its Ok but no better than any of the others,I have tried / I wish him luck but he will need it.
